Lindblad, the two-time SEC Player of the Year and the SEC individual champion, was named the state’s player of the year for the third straight year. Runion, who led the Tigers to back-to-back NCAA Championships and the school’s first SEC Women’s Golf Championship in 30 years, was named the state’s top coach.
